SyFy Network: New Bigfoot Movie with Danny Bonaduce



Some of our favorite TV stars, including Danny Bonaduce and Barry Willams will star in a SyFy movie titled simply as "Bigfoot." This is an update to an article we did last March 2011.

Syfy’s newest creature feature is amassing yet another pop-culture cauldron of familiar names.
The network’s upcoming Bigfoot — which already stars the previously announced power team of Danny Bonaduce (The Partridge Family) and Barry Williams (The Brady Bunch) — is adding the following actors: Howard Hesseman (Head of the Class), Sherilyn Fenn (Twin Peaks), Andre Royo (The Wire), and rock legend Alice Cooper (School’s Out). Bruce Davidson is directing.
The story: When Bigfoot is discovered in South Dakota, two life-long rivals (Williams and Bonaduce) battle to capture the creature — one to exploit it and one to save it.
The movie will debut later this year. My only quibble: The name. Just…  Bigfoot? Not Bigfoot: Toes of Terror? Not Bigfoot Stomp-Squatch? No Bigfoot-aconda? Here’s our previous list of Syfy’s most awesomely bad movie titles.

We just got word from Fangoria reporting we will have to wait. Ugh!!
You’ll have to wait until 2012 to see 1970s pop-culture icons Danny Bonaduce and Barry Williams face off in the hunt for the legendary mountain creature BIGFOOT -- Fangoria.Com


Theres not much information on this yet, but TV Guide is reporting:
Move over, Sharktopus: Syfy's next batch of campy TV movies include zombies, a Jersey Shore shark attack, Danny Bonaduce fighting Bigfoot and Shannen Doherty as Hansel's long-lost sister.

The cable network is set to announce a new slate of original movies on Tuesday, including Bigfoot, which will star The Partridge Family's Bonaduce opposite another 1970s sitcom icon, Barry Williams (The Brady Bunch) as they hunt for the mountain creature.

  1. I just got a notice from Syfy promoters that they're doing a Q&A with Lance Heinrickson who is doing the Banshee movie original. I had to laugh. What do you ask the dude? "Hey, Lance, what's it like to whore for Syfy original movies?" I mean, come on, the dude is in like everyone of them. I love their original movies, though, because they're so bad, they're good. I knew they'd do another BF movie but the stupid child in me kept hoping it'd actually be good.

    1. That was Bruce Davison. He played the evil Senator Kelly in the X-men movies http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001117/

  4. Dvr'd this movie, as I have always liked Howard H. A fan of B. Davison, also(always a good "bad guy?"). Didn't know A.Cooper was in it, till I read these comments. I can't believe any of these guys lent their talent to this charade. I've only watched 30 min. of it, & don't know if I can watch the whole thing or not. But, I'm going to try.
    Syfy channel is a sad, sad place these days.
